'STRIKE!' or 'No strike...' or ... maybe strike and maybe not strikeyet?...

|Billionaire Ken Griffen said Emanuel should have closed 100 schools.|
George Schmidt of Substance News said it best on his website - 'Strike!' or 'No Strike' or 'maybe strike and maybe not strike yet?"
After I stopped laughing when I first read this, I had to think about it once again after the CTU again threatened to "Shut It Down" at a Broke on Purpose event March 9.
The CTU website is calling on "families, students, teachers, workers and all those who thirst for justice" for an all-day march and day of direct action against Gov. Bruce Rauner, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, billionaire Ken Griffin and rest of the 1%.
Griffen has told people the city should have closed 100 schools.
The event is billed as "all day long everywhere."
So is it a strike?
Our foe the Sun-Times speculated that the event "might just be a giant downtown rally to protest several issues: budget cuts, a threatened phase-out of the Board of Education's 7 percent 'pension pick-up' and three unpaid furlough days mandated by Forrest Claypool, Emanuel's handpicked schools chief."
It's not quite clear, is it.
It won't be a strike. It appears to be a strike. It ...
Strike! No Strike. Or Maybe Strike, and maybe not strike yet.
